Amazing Science Experiments to Try at Home

Photo: Doing Science experiments is a great way for deaf children and young people to do something fun after school.

A fun, online session for deaf children to experiment with science.

In this session, your child will learn how to think like a scientist! Together we will explore friction and energy as we make a 'jumping bean' roller and an elastic band roller and find out how far they can roll.

  • Saturday 22 January
  • 11am to 12.30pm
  • on Zoom.
  • recommended for aged 8 to 11. 

Applications for this session will close at 3pm on Thursday 20 January.

More information: what your child will need to take part

  • Access to a computer, smartphone or tablet, and an internet connection.
  • If your child gets a place, we will post out a pack that includes all the materials they will need to build their roller.

Once we’ve confirmed your child’s place, we’ll send full joining instructions.
